Childhood can be a great time for adventure and discovery. In Twins Sails Into Adventure, a new book by Jocelyn Price, exploring becomes twice as fun and exciting because of the twins, Nia and Ngaire, who take center stage in this action-packed storybook.
The twins, Nia and Ngaire, are notable for their self-reliance and passionate interest in the wildlife of the land and sea in the part of New Guinea where they live. Since they were quite young, the twins have accompanied their patrol officer father on many trips through the bush and by sea to the small islands that abound.
At eleven years of age they are sent to boarding school in Australia where they find the life style rather stifling to their free spirits. At last the long summer holidays arrive and the twins can return home to their free and independent way of life. As keen naturalists, they plan to sail together with their dog "Lik-lik" to explore an island and the reefs that surround it.
They are sure the escapade will be filled with amazing discoveries. What they do not know is that the adventure comes with a host of dangers-a shipwreck, komodo dragons, a giant squid and the deadliest of them all: armed criminals who are determined to guard their secret at all cost.
Engaging from beginning to end, Twins Sails Into Adventure unfolds to an extraordinary journey filled with surprising twists, unimaginable danger and page-turning action. Readers aged eight to thirteen will be thoroughly delighted. For more information, log on to http://www.Xlibris.com.au.
